DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Dark Red Tunic Bastian is a short-sleeved cotton tunic designed for children. Reaching from the shoulders to the mid-thighs, this tunic features practical details that make it easier and comfortable to wear, including a notch along the neckline and the short split seam along the sides. Made from red dyed cotton and a purple bottom hem, this tunic is a versatile item that can be a costume all by itself--or work as a base layer in a more complicated design. Either way, this neutral cut tunic is an essential and long-lasting piece for your child’s wardrobe.

Available in Dark Red and Epic Black; and in sizes 6-8 Years, 8-10 Years, and X-Small.
